We always make it a point to have dinner at Sal's when we're in Burlington--it's become a tradition. They have absolutely the best Italian meals you could want. Fortunately, we went on a Thursday for dinner this time; Friday and Saturday have always been packed when we've gone, and we've had a lengthy wait to get a table for a... More

My wife, daughter, and I came here Sunday after church for lunch. They do have a great Sunday brunch buffet but we opted for some pasta. I got baked ziti and my wife got the pasta with vodka sauce. Both were yummy! I had a salad with the homemade Italian dressing which was also great.

Sal's is one of our places to go when we want good food at reasonable prices. My wife and I recently took an out of town guest, and were not disappointed. My wife ordered a dinner salad, I had prime rib, and our guest ordered shrimp scampi. All were delicious.

Have been for lunch and dinner but Sunday Brunch is the best time to go! Buffet style and many different types of food to choose from...breakfast food to ham, pork, italian etc.

The restaurant is casual and the food is plentiful. Nothing over the top but average. I have had better and a lot worse. I think the atmosphere is what makes this place. It is not a typical chain restaurant.

I love the pizza here. The staff for the most part is nice and friendly but a couple time we had one that was kinda rude and acted annoyed when she took our order.

Went with a group of 9 people and the service was slow, orders wrong and the bills for everyone was wrong. Food was just average. Our waitress was new and this was what caused the issues, but in my opinion the restaurant should have had a seasoned waitress working alongside the new waitress for a large group. My displeasure is... More

Have been to Sals many times and always enjoy the food. My favorite is the French dip. They also have really good fries! The pizza is delicious and so are the salads and desserts. They have a bar and dining area and also offer a buffet at times. Staff has always been helpful and friendly.

I have eaten at Sal's for lunch a number of times. Most of the time I get their lunch buffet that consists of a salad bar, a couple of entrées, vegetable dishes, and really good pizza. They do have other menu items but I just can't resist their buffet most of the time. They do have a rib eye sandwich... More
